Pierre Grimes and the Noetic Society

Overview

The Noetic Society is a 501(c)(3) non-profit group with members in Southern California and around the world, who have been inspired to study Homer, Parmenides, the pre-Socratics, Plato, the neo-Platonists, and other perennial philosophers and mystics, not for academic reasons, but for personal spiritual growth. The society was founded by Pierre Grimes, PhD in 1967, and was incorporated in 1978.

Highlights Josh's and Jed's Phaedo question at 75A (using the Balboa Translation ). the only way to come through self-realization is through perception. Would you agree all perceptions are identical?

Synopsis Pierre leads the Noetic Society Parmenides study group through another session of study. Lately we've been taking a break from the Parmenides, going through Proclus' Theology of Plato (*) instead, in order to see how Proclus lays out the 14 orders of gods implied in the Parmenides. Today we read Theology of Plato Book 6, Chapter 23; Phaedo 58a; Republic Book 10, 619b. From Barbara: We read through and worked through p. 458 and 459 in Chapter 23 of Book 6. Fun was had as usual. For...

Dialogue(s): phaedo. Sections: 96a-100d Highlights (thanks, SarahW!): - Problem of cause. How do you understand this idea of cause? - Summarize David Hume's view of cause as representative of modern views. Hume concludes that this is not a question that can be answered. Contrast with Plato in the Phaedo. More info: http://noeticsociety.org/
